You're right, --with-gcc-toolchain won't work with the non-standard
layout you're using. As you show in the clang output, it finds the gcc
install, but doesn't find the include dirs.

--with-cxx-include-root doesn't exist anymore; it was was replaced by
--with-gcc-toolchain in r149651.

Patching lib/Driver/ToolChains.cpp like you suggest
(Linux::AddClangCXXStdlibIncludeArgs is probably the relevant
function) sounds like the way forward. I have no idea if your gcc
install layout is common, but if it is you could try contributing a
